Geographers often talk about 'sense of place', but it can be difficult to really understand what that means.

In this video, we team up with geographers Prof Donald Houston and Dr Carol Ekinsmyth to explore this important concept in human geography. We hear about personal experiences of feeling 'out of place' when moving to new cities. We then discuss how geographers and town planners incorporate 'sense of place' into town design to influence our emotions and behaviour.
